    Unmatched Driver Comfort

    The DAF XB cabs all have perfectly positioned entry steps, wide-opening doors and a low cab position for outstanding accessibility. The comfortable seats feature the same soft-woven upholstery as the DAF XD, XF, XG and XG+ trucks, with which the XB also shares the high level of fit and finish, the new steering wheel and the eye-catching 12-inch digital display on the dashboard.

  • Direct Vision

    Outstanding direct vision

    Outstanding direct vision is realized by the low cab positioning, the large windscreen and side windows and their low window belt lines. As an option, a Kerb View Window is available for an unobstructed view on other road users on the co-driver’s side. The slim design of the new mirrors allow for the perfect combination of direct and indirect view.

    Excellent bodybuilder-friendliness

    The chassis of the XB series features a new grid pattern for excellent bodybuilder-friendliness. New are pre-defined chassis lay-outs with repositioned fuel tanks, exhaust systems, batteries and air tanks, specifically meant for road sweepers and tippers.

  • Highest payloads

    5 / 5

    Highest payloads

    Low kerb weights result in highest payloads for optimal return per kilometre. Best-in-class vehicle efficiency is also realized through the extensive range of wheelbases (up to 6.9 metres) and chassis lengths, allowing over 9 metres superstructures. This ensures the best vehicle configuration for the job.

Powerful diesel performance

The new DAF XB is available with 4.5 litre 4-cylinder PACCAR PX-5 and 6.7 litre 6-cylinder PACCAR PX-7 engines with outputs from 124 kW (170 hp) to 227 kW (310 hp). Both modern and powerful engines develop peak torque at low engine speeds, supporting down-speeding and class leading fuel efficiency. The PACCAR PX-5 and PX-7 engines are ready for the application of HVO, reducing CO2 emissions with up to 90% (‘well-to-wheel’).

PowerLine automatic gearboxes

The DAF XB with PX-5 and PX-7 engines are offered in combination with a 8-speed, fully automatic PowerLine transmission, which offers optimal gear spread and steps. Powershifting without any torque interruption enables smooth shifts and quick throttle response, resulting in outstanding comfort and driveability. In addition, the transmission provides excellent low speed manoeuvrability thanks to the urge-to-move feature upon releasing the brake pedal.
